Season is Not a Walking Simulator or AAA Open World Title
Season : the exploration title premiered at The Game Awards
While the PS5 has big name games as God of War two and Horizon Forbidden West to look forward to, additionally, there are titles like Solar Ash and Stray en route. Add Scavengers Studios’ Season to the list – the exploration title premiered at The Game Awards 2020 and quickly won us over with its aesthetic and atmosphere. In a recent interview with IGN, creative director Kevin Sullivan offered a couple of more details on the way the game plays out.
Is it Breath of the Wild, or A Journey?
The trailer indicated that one would check out the world, collecting artifacts and making memories over the course of a season before a strange disaster wipes out everything. Sullivan noted comparisons to other titles, at least in terms of gameplay. “When I am reading the YouTube comments, folks appear to either believe it’s as Breath of the Wild, or perhaps it’s as Journey. And it is in between.” Season is not “linear or perhaps that strict” as Journey though. “It’s not a AAA open world game and it’s also not a corridor art game. It really is in between.”
Also, he dispelled the belief Season will be a walking simulator. “I guess I would say, given that we made The Darwin Project, we’ve a large amount of gameplay oriented developers on the project. It is not going to be a walking simulator – almost as I like those games where there is no gameplay.” Time will tell just how the gameplay shakes out but for now, fans are actually digging the game’s comfy vibe.
Season is currently in development for PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months plus a possible release date announcement. for extra information, check out the guides of ours Market 4 Games.
